Learn more about projects and programs like The Dutch National Research Agenda, DANS as a Technology Hotel for the Life Sciences, FAIRsFAIRFREYAOpenAIRECESSDASSHOCEOSCRDA and the collaboration between DANS and NLeSC around Software Sustainability. 
    • Andrea Scharnhorst (coordinator) and Gerard Coen (project leader) will be more than happy to tell all about the Research & Innovation group of DANS, and how this may benefit you and what you can do to participate. The Research & Innovation group runs projects such as Digging into the Knowledge GraphReSearchCLARIAH and DARIAH. We also offer internship places for students to work on issues of research and innovating digital archives. 
    • Marjan Grootveld (coordinator Projects and Policy) and Ellen Leenarts (Project Leader) can tell what you need to know about Open and FAIR data management? What are the requirements for data management plans? And how can you train yourself or better support others? Marjan and Ellen will be able to answer all your tricky questions. You can also ask them about the training programs offered by DANS and its partners, such as RDNL’s Essentials for Data Support and CESSDA’s RDM training module.
    • Marion Wittenberg (servicemanager DataverseNL, accountmanager EASY) will tell you more about the fact that universities and research institutes have their own support desk for Research Data Management. DANS cooperates with these support offices in a so called frontoffice-backoffice model. Would you like to know the RDM contact person of your organisation and what they can offer you? Please join Marion.
